In the last post, V.I.P Party you got a glimpse of my amazing trip to Dublin in November past. However the main purpose of the visit was to attend The Louis Vuitton Champagne reception and a special dinner in the Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud. Big Thank you to Tracy, Caroline and all the Team at LV for yet another kind invitation!
That evening we arrived at the Brown Thomas store dressed to impress with our finest Louis Vuitton bags. My original choice for the night was my “Limelight” clutch in gold, however, after discovering on arrival in Dublin that I had left my bag and Camera at home, it gave me the perfect excuse to go shopping for a new evening bag! And so I accquired the “Fetish” Clutch (also shown in yesterdays post).
At the store we were treated to a very interesting talk by a Champagne expert at which we were given samples to taste, to smell and to lavish. We also had a chance to mingle with other LV enthusiasts where the main topic of conversation was, of course, my favourite subject, Handbags.
After this event, we were chauffeur driven to “Patrick Guilbaud” restaurant at the Merrion Hotel. Here we enjoyed a beautiful meal of Lobster Bisque, Cocktail of Red King Crab, Pheasant tourte foie gras and Gorgeous Chocolate and Pear Croquant for dessert. Each course was accompanied by a glass of Cloudy Bay wine or Dom Perignon champagne, both owned by Louis Vuitton, which complimented the flavours perfectly.
At Dinner I had a chance to talk with Tom Meggle, The Managing Director for Louis Vuitton Ireland, UK and Scandinavia. It was a pleasure to meet him and discuss with him some of my Favourite Louis Vuitton items.
Again I apologise for the nature of the pictures as, due to my awful memory, most of them had to be taken on my phone! Let me know what you think of my outfit choice and I would love to hear your comments on my new baby, the “Fetish” clutch!
